1,042 Possible Causes for Severe Photophobia

  • Viral Upper Respiratory Tract Infection

    Conjunctivitis and photophobia may accompany ocular pain.[] More severe viral upper respiratory infections also cause vomiting, nausea, diarrhea and abdominal pain, as well as myalgia, fatigue or malaise- more frequent in influenza[]

  • Acute Alcohol Intoxication

    Complaints of photophobia, blurry vision, findings of papilledema and nonreactive mydriasis may suggest advanced and severe methanol toxicity.[] Clinical Findings The onset and severity of clinical and laboratory abnormalities depends largely on the generation of formic acid ( 6, 12, 23, 28 ).[] Visual disturbances, including decreased visual acuity, photophobia, and blurred vision, and abdominal pain are the most common symptoms of methanol intoxication ( 7, 64 )[]

  • Adenovirus Infection

    EKC is characterized by more severe symptoms, including pain, lacrimation, and photophobia. Involvement is frequently unilateral but may spread to involve both eyes.[] It causes red eyes, photophobia (sensitivity to light), blurry vision, tearing, and pain.[] Keratoconjunctivitis is a more severe eye infection that involves both the conjunctiva and cornea (the transparent front part of the eye).[]

  • Temporomandibular Joint Disorder

    […] headaches which are usually unilateral, pulsating, aggravated by routine physical activity, and are associated with either nausea, vomiting, photophobia, or phonophobia [[] […] non-invasive physical treatments or patient education Laser, acupuncture [ 174 ] Migraine Headache Definition Migraine headache is defined as recurrent/episodic moderate or severe[]

  • Essential Hypertension

    If you have severe exophthalmos, you may not be able to close your eyes properly.[] For example, if exophthalmos is caused by a thyroid eye disease, your eyes may also be: inflamed, red and painful dry and "gritty" tearful sensitive to light (photophobia)[]

  • Atopy

    The onset was acute with discomfort, photophobia, hyperemia, and mucus production.[] Abstract The authors report a series of five markedly atopic patients in whom a severe sclerokeratitis developed within 1 to 4 weeks of keratoplasty.[]

  • Sinusitis

    Typical "sinus" headache pain was reported to be moderate or severe by 97% of patients; and mean HIT-6 score was 62.8, a value reflecting very severe headache impact.[] Most patients with IHS 1.1 or 1.2 diagnoses reported typical migraine characteristics such as worsening of pain with physical activity, nausea, pulsating/throbbing pain, photophobia[]

  • Conjunctivitis

    In severe adenoviral conjunctivitis, patients may have photophobia and foreign body sensation due to corneal involvement. Chemosis may be present.[] However, patients who have severe photophobia or whose vision is affected may benefit from topical corticosteroids (eg, 1% prednisolone acetate 4 times a day).[] Occasionally, severe photophobia and foreign-body sensation occurs, usually caused by adenovirus (epidemic keratoconjunctivitis [EKC]), when associated with keratitis.[]

  • Periodontitis

    Occasionally inflammation can spill into the front portion of the eye (iritis) causing redness, pain, and sensitivity to light (photophobia).[] […] suffering eye pain, severe light sensitivity, and any change in vision should immediately be examined by an ophthalmologist.[] Clinical features • Floaters and hazy vision • No pain, photophobia, redness • First episode is associated with a more severe and symptomatic iridocyclitis • Subsequent episodes[]
